Columbus, A Great Crazy Sailor

By David Saphra (1998)

In the middle of the month of October
We take a break...
To remember
A great, crazy sailor
Who came all the way from Spain
In three little ships
The Nina, the Pinta
And the Santa Maria
Christopher Columbus was his name

In the middle of the month of October
Just when it starts...
Growing colder
The falling leaves remind me
Of a time so long ago
In 1492
When Columbus first came to America
He wanted to get to Old India
But he got here and discovered something new
In the middle of the month of October...
